Smile Guide and invitation for Algerie

Hello!
Am on the road from Marocco to Agadez in the beginning of march 07, driving a Tenere 660. Anyone who has a good link to an authorized company that can arrange invitation and guide service from the south of Algerie

I am planing to cross the Sahara from Agadez.


Cheers
Haakon

Thumbs up Dear Haakon,

I strongly recommend Tanezrouft Voyages:

http://www.tanezrouft.com

Get in touch with Mohamed Haffaoui or Yves Labourette.

Enjoy

Alberto

Smile Dear Haakon,

Yes, I did use them a few months ago and they were really professional and friendly. Tanezrouft Voyages was set up by Yves, a saharan enthusiast living in Switzerland and Mohamed, a tuareg nomad with a long experience as a guide. As I understand the collaborate with Chris Scott in some of his tours. Both Mohamed and Yves complement each other very well and will bend backwards to get their customers what they want. Mohamed knows the Central Sahara and Mali inside out and is very good at reading each customer's wants. Mohamed is a genuine tuareg who loves the desert and a great travel compagnion.

Cheers,

Alberto

Agreeing with Alberto

Hi.

I must say, I also used Tanezrouft agency and I only have with only good experiences with them. If you want, they als have guide(s) who speaks reasonably English.

So, I fully agree with Alberto, I travelled Algeria about two months ago.

Cheers, Jos
